Abstract

Sustainability is complex and demanding to teach and learn in engineering. Several learning activities have been reported in the literature to incorporate sustainability in engineering education. This work reports an extensive literature search about learning approaches on sustainability that use case studies and projects. The most significant works were characterized and analyzed to determine trends and opportunities in the development of learning activities that can be used to incorporate sustainability at different levels in the engineering curriculum.
